04/01/2010 - "History of physical and/or sexual abuse, exposure to antidepressants, and exposure to stimulants was significantly greater among offspring with versus without BP. There was significantly greater prevalence of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), anxiety disorders, oppositional defiant disorder/conduct disorder (ODD/CD), and exposure to stimulants and antidepressants among offspring with versus without BP. Variables significantly associated with BP among offspring in regression analyses were as follows: older offspring age, younger parent age at birth, offspring anxiety disorders and ODD/CD, and biological coparent with BP. History of anxiety and/or disruptive behavior disorders, as well as presence of bi-lineal parental BP, is associated with elevated risk of bipolar spectrum disorders among offspring. "
01/01/1997 - "Although fluoxetine might be more effective than placebo for treating adolescent depression without major comorbidity, little is known about the response of depressive symptoms to antidepressants in adolescents with comorbid conduct disorder (CD) and substance use disorders (SUD). "
02/01/2014 - "Risk factors obtained by regression analysis did not include methylphenidate but did include antidepressants, antipsychotics, and mixed medications, in combination with co-morbid mood, anxiety, personality, and conduct disorders, and older age at diagnosis. "
01/01/2006 - "Evidence suggests that antipsychotics, antidepressants, mood stabilisers, antiepileptic drugs, stimulants and adrenergic drugs can be well tolerated and effective therapeutic options for individuals with conduct disorder and comorbid psychiatric conditions. "
